3CT32 - Count Down


This is Ground Control to Major Tom - David Bowie (Space Oddity)

Don't ask me why but for some reason that song popped into my head when I started to post my card so for those of you interested I've included a link to the YouTube video of this song.

Welcome to 3CT Challenge #32 - Arithmetic (Use Numbers on your card). Now I must tell you that Math was NOT my best subject in school and I still struggle with it from time to time (thank goodness for Calculators).

For this weeks card I chose to base my card around a piece of DP by Reminisce (3-2-1 Blast Off) from the Boys Gone Wild series. I love the bright colors (you almost need sunglasses for this one). I paired it up with the rocket image from SU's Pun Fun. The image was colored with Prisma color pencils and raised with foam dimensional tape. I added some sparkle to the rocket and outer space with Spica Glitter pens. For some added fun I used my Star embossing folder, (Cuttlebug) Large Star Punch which I printed out the 3-2-1 numbers on the computer before punching. Some fun Twill Ribbon, Ric Rack and Brads as embellishments.

Hope you've enjoyed this little bit of Space Travel and now head off to Kerry's blog and check out the other DT members cards as well. Then get to counting and use your mathematical skills to create your own numerical masterpiece.
